AMDs first 45nm quad core to launch will be a Deneb start core with 6MB of cache. It will be followed by other 45nm quad core CPU's while tri and dual core 45nm should come at later time.The site also reports there will be Deneb processors without L3 cache as AMD did some performance analysis and found out that L3 cache offers only a limited performance benefit.
AMD still sticks to its second half of 2008 launch schedule as it overpromised things in the past and got burnt because of it.
It will launch as a server part using socket 1207 and of course as an AM2+ chip for the desktop market.
